62. A Review of Building Evacuation Models
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1633
Published: 7/1/2005
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: Evacuation calculations are increasingly becoming a part of performance-based analyses to assess the level of life safety provided in buildings. In some cases, engineers are using back-of-the-envelope (hand) calculation to assess life safety, and in ...
